1913 Carnegie Free Library, Bellefontaine, Ohio


1905: Library moved into the new Carnegie building which was constructed for a bid of $11,720 after receiving a grant of $14,000 from Mr. Carnegie. Balance of $35.73 remained in the treasury after construction. Due to lack of funds for maintenance the Library was closed for two periods of several weeks.
